[Lynn] What was your favorite birthday,
00:01
of all your birthdays, what was the most memorable?
00:04
Not a big birthday person, but I would say, hmm.
00:15
I had a birthday once, and I actually don't remember
00:17
what number it was, where a bunch of musicians
00:21
came over to my house.
00:23
And it's, and they called a bunch of musicians,
00:25
and they called a bunch of musicians
00:27
of all different disciplines, like bluegrass
00:29
and rock and jazz, all kinds of stuff,
00:33
all playing in my house together until like
00:35
4:00 in the morning.
00:37
I actually woke up my child
00:38
and had her come down and watch it.
00:40
[Lynn] Wow, and did you sing?
00:41
I did, yeah.
00:43
I sang, um, I think I sang a bluegrass song.
00:47
Yeah, I might've sang like On the Banks of the Ohio
00:50
or something.
00:51
[Lynn] Did they sing Happy Birthday at any point?
00:53
No, no, no, no, no, I don't think so.
00:56
(Peter laughs)
00:57
I don't like the, I just want the party to happen
01:00
without the, you know,
01:02
the big cake and all that moment.
01:04
[Lynn] But, you know, it is your birthday.
01:06
Yeah, well, they could leave a present.
01:08
That'd be nice.
